This movie reminds me that Hollywood is increasingly snubbing the American audience's intelligence. Today, most mainstream movies overuse slang and movie plots deal with either complete fantasy or complete idiocy. I am curious as to who rates the movies on most internet movie databases because Rollover received such low marks. Compared to most thrillers today, Rollover has a very credible plot and it is extremely engaging even with all the financial/investment jargon. This movie falls into the category of "must watch films" such as Apocalypse Now, Dr. Strangelove, and Boiler Room. It is wild to realize that the content of this fictional, financial thriller is based on the exact business policies and goals of the gigantic banking industry of today! It is shocking that the allegiance of the American banking industry is purely to profit rather than supporting American businesses-- US banks somehow find it more profitable to make precarious alliances with foreign investors. It encourages us to think about all the drama that must have been brewing in the WTC and, subsequently, the tragic event of 9-11.
